Can I be candid for a moment??? Yesterday was a pretty rough day in my adventures of mommyhood! It seemed as if everytime I turned around I was repeating myself, scolding someone, putting furniture back in its rightful place, sitting someone down for time out, or being a referee.
It was draining…….to be honest yesterday was discouraging for me. I felt very disconnected and at one point I like I was more of a task master than mommy. Man, I don’t think it’s supposed to be like this I remember thinking this as I sat on the couch, praying for peace and patience.
After I put the kids to be last night, I took a moment to just be. I put on some music, closed my eyes and took advantage of the quietness. I told God that I trusted Him and that I’m putting myself in his hands to be molded into the woman, wife, mother, friend and witness that He would have me to be…
Today I got up with a renewed spirit!!! I refuse to let yesterday cause me to be anxious, uptight and rob me of my joy. As I was reading in Proverbs this morning, one specific verse stood out and it is now my affirmation for the day ” For the Lord is my confidence, and will keep my foot from being caught”……..
I’m believing God for an awesome day, filled with joy and direction that comes from being in His presence…….what about you???
